US tennis star John Isner told reporters it would be “awesome” if President Donald Trump stops by to watch him play at Wimbledon this week.
The 6 foot 8 inch star tennis player said, “I’d love to have Trump come watch me.”
The Daily Mail reported:
If John Isner can ace his way through to Friday’s semi-finals, he is ready to incur the wrath of social media by inviting Donald Trump to Centre Court.
The US President — a big tennis fan — arrives in London for his UK visit on Thursday night and American No 1 Isner would appreciate the support should he reach the last four.
‘I’d love to have Trump come watch me,’ said No 9 seed Isner. ‘That would be awesome. Maybe I’ll tweet at him if I win on Wednesday. I know a lot of people won’t like that, but I don’t care.’
The 6ft 8in Isner reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon for the first time on Monday by blasting through 19-year-old Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 7-6, 7-6.
Despite his astonishing serve, Isner has an awful record at the All England Club, having never gone beyond the third round before this fortnight.
The 33-year-old from North Carolina is best known around these parts for his absurd match against Nicolas Mahut in 2010, which he won 70-68 in the final set.
Isner reached the semi-final round on Wednesday defeating Milos Raonic 6-7 (5), 7-6 (7), 6-4, 6-3.
